    One thought on “Lexington and Concord: The Beginning of the War of the American Revolution

    1. Brian

      Lexington and Concord by Arthur Tourtellot provides an in depth look at the skirmishes that started the American Revolution and the forces that were responsible for bringing them about Never going into voluminous detail, but still keeping an agile view of how the events are interconnected, the reader gets a great view of how the events of the revolution were pushed forward by the Sons of Liberty Despite the conciliatory nature of Gage and the British up until the point of the battles it would be [...]

      In April1775 Patriot Sam Adams felt the revolutionary movement had reached a stalemate, and realized that he would have to wait for an event to change the feelings of the people On April 19, 1775 Governor General Thomas Gage sent a regiment of 700 plus British soldiers to march to Concord to seize and destroy hidden ammunition and other military stores of the colonists On the way they were to arrest Sam Adams and John Hancock, chief rabble rousers and antagonists for the revolutionary cause The [...]

      This is an excellent book on the beginning of the Revolutionary War As a non history reader, I am addicted now to American History Our history is so rich and exciting We seldom approach this subject as a great story, but it is one of the best.

    4. John Noll

      A fascinating and accurate human portrayal of the events surrounding Lexington and Concord The author does a wonderful job researching the entire ordeal and provides a description devoid of fantastical, deity like individuals who possess an immense and prescient self awareness of their actions The best example of this is the author s description of Paul Revere s famous ride The author does an excellent job of providing multiple theories on thoughts of individuals and, while utilizing the writing [...]

      This book gives an account of Lexington and Concord from an interesting perspective beginning with the patriot movement in the town of Lexington itself It has plenty of primary sources regarding the battle, and it has some interesting points in the aftermath But overall, I think Fisher s Paul Revere s Ride is much better I had two issues I with this book First was Tourtellot s frequent and vigorous denunciations of the Calvinism and Puritanism of New England The other was the way he framed the l [...]

      I normally don t care for book about singular battles I know this was technically two different battles, but they have always been lumped together as one , but this book was pretty good Usually books about singular battles get too heavily into lists of soldiers, the weapons they were using, the provisions they had, the positions they were in, etc, and not enough on the events leading up to the battle, and the long term effects the battle ended up having This book has a perfect balance of both Yo [...]

      Absorbing, fast paced account of the battle at Lexington and Concord and interesting details about Sam Adams, John Hancock and the everyday people of Lexington and Concord This book was recommended to me and at first I wasn t sure if I d like it But once I started reading it, I could hardly put it down My appetite has been whetted for books on the Founders and American history in general Don t fire unless fired upon But if they want a war, let it begin here Captain John Parker

    8. Leif Herrgesell

      This book was also published under the title William Diamonds Drum Excellent research, fascinating story about a critical day in American history Highly recommend it especially to teachers and patriots Combine this with John Adams by David McCullough and you have a phenomenal foundation for the War of Independence.

    9. Matt

      Highly recommend as an introduction and backdrop to the American Revolution Clearly lays out what happened at Lexington and Concord, why it happened and the effect it had on starting the Amercian Revolution.

    10. Carlos Madden

      Good quick book for those wanting to know just a little about these events commonly glossed over in history classes, but far from an in depth total, academic review.

    11. Roger

      It is so important to remember the birth of the United States and the attendant ideals This was a great book, not just to remember, but to learn details most textbooks don t mention.
